1. In the world of high complications, the grande and petite sonnerie holds a very special place, well above even split-seconds chronographs, perpetual calendars, and certainly above the once-holy tourbillon. There are but a small handful of watchmakers, as individuals, or as brands, capable of producing such a watch. It is that special, and François-Paul Journe launched his Sonnerie Souveraine back in 2006, by himself. For more, go to: hodinkee.com/blog/fp-journe-grande-sonnerie-video

  2. In October of 2014, Patek Philippe presented a collection of pieces that the world had been waiting 25 years to see. It was Patek who in 1989 launched the very concept of commemorative watches with its 150th anniversary collection and who today still garners more attention than anyone else in the world of haute horlogerie. We have already shown you the basics of what comprises the Patek 175 collection (see here, here, here, and here) but today we will go hands-on with all the pieces, as well as break down a bit more about what this collection may or may not mean long-term. And yes, we do break down the $2,500,000 Grandmaster Chime for you. For more, go to: hodinkee.com/blog/patek-philippe-grand-master-chime-review

  3. Matt Jacobson is the type of guy who doesn't need to live in Silicon Valley with the rest of his world – he is the head of Market Development for Facebook – or in Beverly Hills with the other men of means; he'd prefer to live in a Ray Kappe-designed home on the water in Manhattan Beach – the type of home you might, and actually did, see in Dwell Magazine. To put it simply, Matt Jacobson's life isn't about excess – it's an expertly calculated equation that suits him and him alone just perfectly. His watch collection follows suit. This is Talking Watches with Matt Jacobson. For more, go to hodinkee.com/blog/video-talking-watches-with-matt-jacobson

  4. Well, we're coming up to the close of another great year at HODINKEE. We thought that we'd put together a little highlight reel of some of our favorite videos from 2014, just like we did at the end of 2013. These aren't in any particular order, and does not include any of our extremely popular Week On The Wrist Reviews. Instead, you'll find some highlights from this year's Talking Watches, our boutique visits, our first two Three on Three mega reviews, some Reference Points on the Paul Newman Daytona, and even more. Watch above and you can find all original videos below. For more go to: hodinkee.com/blog/video-the-hodinkee-2014-year-in-review

  5. If you were growing up in the mid '90s like I was, there were a few albums that transcended any form of genre or culture to become part of something bigger – part of life. The Score was one of those albums. The Fugees, consisting of Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, and Pras Michel, went on to win two Grammys and The Score went platinum twice over. At the center of this trio is today's guest. Not only is the man who can be held responsible for the creation of this super group (Pras discovered Lauryn Hill in high school in South Orange, New Jersey) a seasoned performer and writer, but he is also an acclaimed documentary filmmaker, philanthropist, and yes, even a serious watch collector. This is Talking Watches with the Fugees' Pras Michel. For more, go to: hodinkee.com/blog/video-talking-watches-with-pras
